I know that the pilcrow ¶ must be used to cite a paragraph from a (standard/legal/normative) document organized in numbered paragraphs, and the section sign § when organized by numbered sections. I'm currently working with a document with the following format:
1 Section A [Akey]
1.1 Section AA [AAkey]
1 Paragraph 1 from section AA 2 Paragraph 2 from section AA
Depending on the context, I have to cite just the paragraph, or the whole reference (section ref + paragraph number). In the second case, what is the correct way of citing the paragraph:
Section lettered format:
[AAkey] ¶ 1,
¶ [AAkey]1, etc?
Section numbered format:
§ 1.1 ¶ 1.
And what if I have to cite more than one paragraph of a same section?,
¶¶ [§1.1.1 - §1.1.2], etc?
Notice that I'm also worried about when, how and how many non-breaking spaces I have to write in these cases, because I find a bit like cumbersome to write more than one non-breaking spaces in some cases.
In the lettered case at least, I have also seen the
[key]/paragraph syntax, without (non-breaking) spaces.
